When these two superpowers unite, you can achieve better results faster. Come discover how combining these disciplines leads to better form interaction and increased conversion rates. Angie and Fred show how to craft data-supported, user-centric arguments that drive change and meet goals.

Ross Jenkins, Vice President of Analytics, Rapp Collins Worldwide
Understanding the intent behind online behavior is the key to pulling value from your online data. And the ultimate intent (a purchase, an ad impression, a download) signaled by that click or series of clicks can help you vastly improve your online marketing results. A major pharma company is quantifying, measuring, and using behavioral intent as the basis for an entirely new way to digitally market their products through advanced segmentation and targeting. Ross returns by popular demand to provide a case study that shows how you can use your web data to uncover and understand intent, identify underperforming segments, and act on behavioral insights that drive both marketing and business results.
